    What you like simply isn't good for most of the residents of your state.
    I am totally shocked at how many Texans you know and your knowledge of what people in this state believe is good for them. Your understanding of every topic makes you quite a legend but is only second to your arrogance.

    I've given you the facts. They are what they are.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    you gave me cherry picked data that you don't even understand. You have no concept as to the diversity in this state or the varying economies from different parts of this state. You totally ignore that there are liberals in this state and liberal areas are typical to other liberal areas around the nation, worse than their conservative counterparts. TX on a whole is a great state to live in. Like you, I have lived in various parts of the country and none better than where I live now. It really is too bad that your opinion of TX comes from articles that you don't even understand and take totally out of context. Why don't you compare TX to California, New York, Illinois, liberal states and see where those large states rate in terms of the same information you want to condemn TX for.

    I realize that nothing is going to change your mind nor do I really care. Your jealousy and the jealousy of other liberals is in full display.

    Hardly. I merely looked up the rankings. Used multiple sources to verify. The results are what they are. Of course, anyone who pays attention knows of the troubles in Texas.

    I sure do and of course the rugged individuality in this state drives liberals crazy. You see, Texans understand personal responsibility and most aren't looking for handouts. Those that are, are transplanted liberals who expect the taxpayers to take care of them. I don't see the people of TX exiting the state in mass, gee, wonder why?

    Look up myth of rugged individualism or American mythology. It'll help you learn some more.

    I see. My opinion of you is diminished further. The Tea Party movement was stopped in its tracks by the illegal IRS activities. We experienced a coup in this nation. And the best you can say is hyperbole?

    When did you become an enemy of liberty?

    From what I know of Joe, I would say it was about 6 years ago....When I first met him, he was far more measured in his thought processes, and during conversation would actually read, ponder, and sometimes even say that his opposition had a good point. But then again, that was also when randel (aka: Green Lantern) also touted himself as a conservative, so it all could have been an act.

    I don't think that Joe is against Liberty, just that he defines liberty in a far different way, and that is he looks at it from the emotional standpoint of 'fairness' rather than ability, and personal responsibility. And as long as he is insulated from what he proscribes for others to do, then he truly doesn't understand what the ramifications of his thoughts would be left to run wild.

    In short a typical progressive.

    No it wasn't. It died due to stupidity.

    And I'm no enemy of liberty. I just don't go over the edge with the exaggerations. It's enough of a problem when dealing with it honestly. I don't support those actions. But when you exaggerate, like crying wolf, you lose credibility. You help those who do these things by playing the fool. It costs you wider support.
